The problem for Lost was it became such a big popular show that they milked the ass right out of it, it should have ended sooner..

Its ok to have a 3 or 4 season show, a lot of the European shows don't have these multiple seasons of the same shit, or if you are having these have like 5 episodes rather than 15!!

My wife's attention span for these types of shows has now gone completely, works for me then as I'll head up to bed after putting on one of my shows for an hour.

after saying all that something will come along that'll I'll end up watching for ages!!

Yeah I noticed They like to squeeze the tits right out of American shows. Friends being another example. The last 4 or 5 seasons were absolutely brutal. They should quit years before but they were raking it in with TV viewings, DVD’s, merchandise etc.

I liked Gervais’ The Office. It had 2 series. Perfect amount. The US one has near 200 episodes. Like wtf?

Oh let’s watch XXXX. How many episodes has it got? 582. F**k that.

Unless a show has only 20-30 shows, I’m not interested. Which is why I’ve seen very few on that list.

Was listening to 5 live on the way into work, the vast majority of those with Covid in hospital are not vaccinated, that came from the head of the medical doctors federation, he also said that we will need to have the booster to help with this winter as people's immunes will be less due to the last time they had the second jab..

Now, I'd take the information from him over the crackpots on facebook in fairness, I know, call me crazy...

Who knows what's going to happen this winter, it won't be pretty that's for sure, but if several million of people in the UK haven't taken a vaccine how will it ever work?

Are we going down to the point of acceptable death, with hospitals over run with more 'acceptable' deaths from other issues because we have no staff to run it or beds to put people in?

The vaccine roll out really should have been what drove us back towards normality(it has been) but the number of people still not taking the vaccine is a pain, so selfish.

As crude as it sounds, we do have to have a number of acceptable deaths. Every other part of our life has an acceptable number of deaths. We have to live with Covid just like we live with many other diseases. We cannot go back to locking people down. Personally I’d like to see the government turn the screw more and make more things undoable without vaccine passport, there’s people who can’t take the vaccine we should be giving them a similar exemption pass but everyone else get the jab and get on with life

Pointing the finger at the unvaccinated is a deliberate distraction from the fact that the vaccine clearly isn’t working, and isn’t stopping the rise in infection rates.

The building industry is self regulated in the republic, no nsai audits or policing of products to meet minimum accept quality criteria. Therefore the tax payer will be liable for full redress of the re-build of thousands of homes in Donegal (affected by mica) to the tune of 3 billion euro plus.
Same applies to the Covid certs. Leo Varadkar expects me to ask a pub why they let me into their facility without producing a proof of Covid Vaccination Cert. Whats the point in asking for certs if the matter is not going to be policed by an independent body. The government in the republic have handled things poorly too. We always had a winter health crisis regarding hospitals & availability of ICU beds, the unvaccinated are the fall guys these days.

By the way whats the story in the North, do they ask for Covid Certs when dinning indoors?
I was in Sligo at the weekend and it was a shock to the system covid wise, asked for vaccine certificate everywhere and just that feeling of strictness, the North is a joke, you might get asked for a name & phone number at a pub door from my experience.

The covid pass is nonsense.

You could have 100 people in a pub, and they’ll all be let in with their passes, no questions asked. Any number of them could have covid. Now, you might say the vaccine reduces transmission/severity, but that’s still potentially 100 people coming out of that pub with the virus.

A league format is not a championship. A championship is knock out. Who the hell wants to see continuous matches between the same teams? It’ll be like Groundhog Day.

Their Proposal B tries to solve all the issues, and will end up solving none.

Finished 6 of those. Started another couple but gave up.

I don’t know how people can watch so much tv these days. It would be a full time job keeping up with them all

The general plan is to let all these boys die before any of them are actually going to be charged. How convenient

Or incriminate anyone else (particularly their superiors). A bit like what they did with Jimmy Saville.

He was 88 and suffering with heart and other health problems, he wasn’t going to live too long

He was 80. The man he murdered though was only a third of that age.

I wonder if an 80 year old Republican was up on similar charges , would unionists think it an outrage he was dragged through the courts.

Such is the challenge, winning Tyrone means more to the clubs involved than winning Ulster, its bonus territory, not overly arsed

Whereas Cross and others flipped that paradigm due to their local dominance, Armagh meant nothing, only a starter for the main course

In Tyrone the main course in the Senior champ, Ulster is desert, take it or leave it

Not true. Mullaghbawn won the county championship in 1995, but  they were hardly dominating the club scene in Armagh. It was their first title in 30 odd years.

Cross won the county 1996, but hadn’t been in a final for 10 years, and then won Ulster dnd the All Ireland at the first attempt. But they werent  exactly dominating armagh before 1996.

https://m.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/business/northern-ireland/reunification-of-ireland-is-close-says-top-economist-posen-40920667.html

The reunification of Ireland will take place “within five to 10 years” because the conflict between politics and the economy under the NI Protocol is not sustainable, an economist has said.

Dr Adam S Posen, president of the Peterson Institute for International Economics, said he believed there was “no good option” for the future of the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic.

Posen's point is that for NI to have the “best of both worlds” under the NI Protocol required “political maturity” and it won't get it. So the Protocol setup could lead to benefits for NI but London and the Unionists will sabotage this.
In its first year, that seems a reasonable characterisation of events so far.

What do we want?
- to pay more tax on sausages
When do we want it?
- Now!

The gerrymandered statelet could become an economic boomtown. But no, we can’t be having that! A basket case it is, and a basket case it shall remain.

Are there many within the Utd fan base that still back ole at this point?

Ole did reasonably well when he took over, but he was never the answer. United should have used those 6 months after José left to get the right man. When Ole steadied the ship, at the end of that season, he should have been patted on the back, thanked, and  sent on his way,  with his reputation very much  enhanced.

Caught the late late last night.
Have to say, the unrehearsed ballad that Finbar furey and John  Sheehan played in tribute to Paddy Maloney was incredible.
Very moving and a moment that made me very proud to be Irish.

That stopped me in my tracks.  Absolutely brilliant, that was.

Instead of TLLS having specials for Geldof’s birthday or that awful valentines night thing, bring these guys and their mates in and have a night with them. The Irish musical legends are slipping away one by one. We need to treasure them while they are still here. So get them all together and showcase the incredible talent this country has.

Here’s a question

If proposal B is passed, which basically makes provincials irrelevant,  what would be the point of building Casement?

Some might say what’s  the point of building it anyway? But you know what I mean. Casement will likely hold Ulster finals. So if the ulster championship becomes a meaningless pre season competition likethe McKenna cup, it could be played in the moy or somewhere, for all that’s going to attend.

Antrim are unlikely to fill Casement, so if the Ulster championship  becomes as dead as the emu, why build Casement?
